Twiitter Sceenr and Linux

It basically captures whatever is on your screen. Video. pictures, screenshots
. As a rolling video and allows you to publish yourself on your webpage or tweet on twitter.

I have tested it with My AntiX 8.2 and Ubuntu 8.04 LTS with Latest Java (Java j6u16) install. I can open it and record just fine. I click the Red done button which takes me to screen preview and publish page. The site says it is trying to go through the publish step. And just hangs.

I figure the site can't handle Linux. I know the site says "Got Windows or Mac"

I tested it with just a short Video of my Ubuntu Desktop
for 1min 27 sec
I tested it in AntiX 8.2 with a Beat box video I made at

Used Opera 10 and Firefox 3.5.2

Records just fine. But no joy with publish. Which looks like it is in screenr sites hands.

I emailed screenr developers and was informed that for now screenr is only ported for Windows and MacOS. That was why screenr won't publish for me. They are considering porting it to Linux. But I guess I am the only one who has asked a question about Linux and screenr. So Looks like using this in Linux is a no go for now.

I tested this because Hardrive space on Asus EEEpc SSD Netbooks is sparce at best and if you can use a web app like screenr to record video shots of Desktop Installs for tutorials and such for posting to your webpage or blog. So much the better.

    UPdate: Screenr now works using Linux. As Long as yoyu have a decent version of Java plugin installed in your browser. I tested with jre6u16 in Iceweasel in AntiX 8.2 and was finally successful with a upload.
